The Neighbourhood (sometimes written as THE NBHD) is an American rock band from Newbury Park, California. Active since 2011, the group consists of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, Jeremiah Freedman and Zach Abels on guitar, drummer Brandon Alexander Fried, and bassist Mikey Margott. They’re known for their blend of sounds from ’90s-style alt-rock, indie, pop, and R&B, and scored their first hit with “Sweater Weather,” a track from their debut album, I Love You.
The Neighbourhood’s sound is definitely eclectic, but its most consistent elements are distorted drums and bass, laid-back vocals from Jesse Rutherford, and the effects-laden licks of guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels. The band’s unique take on indie rock has earned them numerous accolades throughout their career.
